The Sphere Humanitarian Charter and the Humanitarian Inclusion Standards provide an ethical and legal backdrop, and minimum standards to guide humanitarian response and ensure quality and accountability. They provide guidance on how to make preparedness and humanitarian response more relevant for individuals who are often left behind.
